Clark Nichols has spent a lifetime helping companies build their businesses, both as an employee in his early years, as an owner in his ambitious years, and as a consultant in his productive years. He is a natural born entrepreneur infused with a missionary zeal to help the next generation of entrepreneurs learn that business is a clean and honorable profession bound by rules of propriety as well as law.

Clark consults with companies in their infancy and has never had a failure. By the time companies reach adolescence, which by Clark’s definition begin s after the second year, the true test of management begins and Clark’s work is done. In his heyday, Clark helped more than forty companies go public, many through reverse mergers.

Charlie oDonnell is the sole Partner and Founder at Brooklyn Bridge Ventures.

He previously had investment roles at Union Square Ventures and First Round Capital.

Charlie has a reputation for being early to identifying important companies. Nick Bilton identifies him as an influence on early Twitter investors in his book, Hatching Twitter. Dennis Crowley credits him as having helped kick off the first funding of Foursquare before other VCs had said yes. At First Round Capital, he sourced the firm's investments in Singleplatform (sold to Constant Contact) and GroupMe (sold to Skype).  Charlie discovered GroupMe at the hackathon where the service had been built. He also sourced investments in Backupify (which was an idea he had tweeted to the founder, a friend of his), chloe + isabel, and Refinery29.  

Charlie bikes to work, has done four triathlons, the NYC marathon, and runs the kayaking program in Brooklyn Bridge Park.  The longest he has consecutively been outside of the five boroughs of New York City is three weeks.
